BBC Vikings

BBC har visat en serie i tre delar som handlar om Vikingar. Har äntligen fått tag i dessa och ska nu se dem. Spännande ^^

Episode one

Oliver goes to Scandinavia to discover the mysterious world of the Vikings' prehistoric ancestors. The remains of weapon-filled war boats, long-haired Bronze Age farmers, and a Swedish site of a royal palace and gruesome pagan rituals from which the Viking Age was to suddenly erupt.

Episode two

Oliver heads out from the Scandinavian homelands east with Viking explorers to Russia and Turkey to trace the beginnings of a vast trading empire using rivers of eastern europe as far as Istanbul and Bagdad that brought back Chinese silks and Buddhist statues. Within the Hagia Sophia, Istanbul, Viking runes were scratched into the marble. In the west raids on Britain and Ireland commenced exploiting the wealth of anglo saxon England.

Episode three

Oliver heads west tracing the Norse voyages of discovery to Iceland and Greenland. The first Danish kings and the Christian conversions, earlier than first thought, that opened the door to European high society. The blackmailing of English kings by way of the Danegeld which culminated in a Viking conquest of England and the rise of Danish King Canute, who eventually lost control of the Viking empire, ruled England for twenty years and was intered in Winchester cathedral.

Oh, tack för tipset! :)

Svar: Inga problem! :) Väldigt intressant serie. I mars ska även en serie vid namn Vikings börja sändas på History Channel. Det kommer dock vara "fiction" och vara typ som Game of Thrones, fast med vikingar (och baserad på fakta). Vad jag förstått det som i alla fall :)
